WACO, Texas – No. 1-ranked and second-seeded Baylor men’s tennis cruised past Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, 4-0, at the Hurd Tennis Center on Saturday to advance to the NCAA Second Round.

BU picked up its 30th win of the season for the first time since 2005, while also improving to 32-1 all-time in postseason play that’s held in Waco.

No. 75 Matias Soto/Nick Stachowiak got it started with a blistering 6-0 victory on court two over Pascal Lorieul/Nathan Schwartz, and No. 9 Constantin Frantzen/Sven Lah followed suit with a 6-2 win at the top spot to seal the opening tally for the Bears.

Moving into singles, it was more quick work as Spencer Furman put another point on the board at the No. 6 spot, winning 6-1, 6-1 over Guillermo Castaneda. Charlie Broom then picked up his 100th-career singles victory on court five, 6-2, 6-3, over Borja Delgado to inch BU closer.

No. 21 Adrian Boitan was the clincher, collecting a 6-3, 6-1 win on court one against Kyohei Yamanaka.

Two other Bears were leading by a set when play was halted in Lah and Stachowiak, while No. 11 Soto had split his first two frames.
